The Mortal War is over and Clary Fray, 16, is back home in New York and excited about all the possibilities before her. She is training in becoming a Shadowhunter and making use of her unique power. Her mother marries with the love of her life. Downworlders, and Shadowhunters are finally at peace. A... nd - most important of all - she can finally call her boyfriend Jace. But without a price, nothing does come. Someone is killing Shadowhunters, causing tensions that could lead to a second, bloody war between Downworlders and Shadowhunters.

When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set a terrible chain of events in motion that could lead her to lose everything she loves. Including Jace.

Quotes from City of Fallen Angels

Max," Jace said. "Max, I’m so sorry.

The alley and the music all fell away, and there was nothing but her and the rain and Jace, his hands on her. . . He made a noise of surprise, low in his throat, and dug his fingers into the thin fabric of her tights. Not unexpectedly, they ripped, and his wet fingers were suddenly on the bare skin of her legs. Not to be outdone, Clary slid her hands under the hem of his soaked shirt, and let her fingers explore what was underneath: the tight, hot skin over his ribs, the ridges of his abdomen, the scars on his back. This was uncharted territory for her, but it seemed to be driving him crazy: he was moaning softly against her mouth, kissing her harder and harder, as if it would never be enough, not quite enough —

But I watch my brothers give their hearts away and I think, Don’t you know better? Hearts are breakable. And I think even when you heal, you’re never what you were before.

She smiled. Her skin looked whiter than he recalled, and dark spidery veins were beginning to show beneath its surface. Her hair was still the color of spun silver and her eyes were still green as a cat’s. She was still beautiful. Looking at her, he was in London again.

He saw a boy with black hair and blue eyes like Alec’s, heard violin music like the sound of silver water. He saw a girl with long brown hair and a serious face. In a world where everything went away from him eventually, she was one of the few remaining constants.
And then there was Camille.

He is bound to you, said the Queen. But does he love you?

Hearts are breakable," Isabelle said. "And I think even when you heal, you're never what you were before".

Teenage relationships. They're Clare's bread and butter, and she's not one to shy away from controversy either.

‘City of Fallen Angels’ is the perfect mix of every emotion and will leave you incapable of sitting back throughout the constant twists and turns and riveting suspense. In my opinion, this is the strongest book in Clare’s series so far.

In summing-up, City of Fallen Angels is for completists only… who will probably read it with fingers crossed that this series gets better next instalment.

The recapping and progression of the new story was expertly done, leaving no one behind while not boring the avid fans.
